Thread: Epicenter timings are off?

  1. #1

    Epicenter timings are off?

    Since nothing stated in changelogs about changing epicenter values.

    Expected:
    cast time 2.0
    pulses delay: 0.35
    first pulse delay: 0 (ok, this could be changed in flavor of dagger-shifting, but neverthereless)

    Practice:
    sk level 3+agh

    cast time 2.03
    odd pulses delay: 0.23
    even pulses delay: 0.27
    total: 2 pulses per 0.5 s

    sk level 3
    iSJl.png
    cast time 2.03
    first pulse delay: 0.34
    next pulses delay: 0.3
    total: 2 pulses per 0.6 s

    sk level 2+agh
    khWs.png
    cast time 2.03
    first pulse delay: 0.33
    next pulses delay: 0.3
    total: 2 pulses per 0.6 s

    sk level 2

    cast time 2.03
    1st pulse: 0.4
    2nd: 0.37
    3rd: 0.37
    4th: 0.4
    5th: 0.36
    6th: 0.37
    7th: 0.37
    8th: 0.4
    total: 2 pulses per 0.78 s

    sk level 1+agh

    5th: 0.37
    6th: 0.36
    7th: 0.37

    Yes, it doesn't pulse in even intervals. This randomness can be seen in many other dots as well. I don't know why this randomness exist, but it only seems to exist in the first heroes which got added to Dota2. Leshrac's edict has this randomness as well.

    How did I miss this the first time.. I didn't notice the different intervals per level.


    It pulses with 0.5/0.375/0.3 (0.375/0.3/0.25 with aghs) intervals, while in DotA1 it pulses with 0.35 on each level, with and without aghs.

    In Dota2, the overall time it takes to release all pulses is always 3 seconds (ignoring the +- 0.03 seconds).


    Why are this kind of changes done to spells without any notes or anything..
